All Saints’ shares Christ’s love within our church and throughout our community. We offer reverent and relevant worship in our Sunday and Wednesday morning services, with a children’s homily on the 1st and 3rd Sundays a month. We have a dedicated lay ministry team and offer a variety of fellowship opportunities.
We strive to build bridges of connection between Christ and our community through our commitment to outreach. We help feed the hungry by providing grocery store gift cards, and we participate in the “Caring and Sharing” community food program. We collect hats and gloves for children on our Mitten Tree and baby clothes in Mary’s Cradle. Our Mustard Seed Project (“Gracie’s Promise”) supports families of children with catastrophic illnesses. We also coordinate ecumenical services with our Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist, and Nazarene neighbors and organize the annual community-wide carry-in dinner in the middle of Main Street.
All Saint’s Church building and its rectory are among the first buildings of Torrington. In 1912, as the congregation grew, the wood frame church building was purchased and there, the first Easter service was held. An electric reed organ, the only one in town, was purchased through an anonymous donor and moved to All Saints’ of Torrington. Over the altar, a stained-glass window was called the “bicycle window,” because a young girl who was saving her money for a new bicycle told her mother, “Mother, I would like to have my bicycle money buy the window.” In 1947, All Saints’ held ground-breaking ceremonies for a new building, which the congregation worships in today.
